I decided to remove the exhaust manifold this evening and fit the Chris Tullet manifold.
Everything came apart perfectly, but the Tullet manifold was a ***** to fit, the holes on the mounting plate were very slightly out, not by much but several hours with a needle file opening them out bit by bit and it eventually went on.
I have not done the down pipe yet, that will be later on this week.
But the aded bonus is the weight saving!
Original Downpipe - 7.7kg's
Piper Downpipe - 4.6kg's
So a 3.1kg saving
Original Cast Manifold - 4.7kg's
Chris Tullet Manifold - 2.4kg's
So another 2.4kg off, so 5.4 kg overall saving!
Here are the pics progress so far :-
I will post up more pics once the whole job is finished.
